Former Islington ABC heavyweight Daniel Dubois made it a winning professional debut against Truro’s Marcus Kelly in Manchester.

Kelly, a late substitute, came out swinging punches but left his defence wide open.

A left hook to the body followed by a left hook to the head put Kelly onto the canvas and referee Lee Ellis called it off.

Former St Pancras ABC member Davis Pagan made it professional win number four with a knockout success in Southend.

It came against Poland’s Sylwester Walczak in round three of a dinner show at the Skylark Hotel and was his first inside the distance.

He now has a pro record of four wins in five fights.
